Over the five years to 2017, the Emergency Veterinary Services industry benefited from increased pet ownership nationwide. Thanks to many companion animals being treated as family members, many individuals were willing to spend more on high-cost emergency services to ensure the health of their pets. Emergency veterinary practices provide high-cost treatments, including time-sensitive surgical procedures such as liver shunt correction, fracture repairs, exposure to toxic substances, removal of cancerous masses and organ biopsies. Furthermore, new medical technologies and product innovations expanded industry operators' product portfolios. During the five-year period to 2022, many emergency veterinary practices are expected to expand their high-value services, such as more on-site critical care specialists and other specialized employees (e.g. surgeons), reinforcing industry revenue growth. Companies in this industry provide emergency veterinary services to livestock, equines and domesticated animals.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
